Par 70, yardage 6,800. The Royal Aberdeen Balgownie Links is one of the oldest courses in the world and, as such, has attracted many top players over the years. Even some of them have found it to be a tough test and, for many, it is a perfect example of the exacting nature of links golf. The 18th is a par-4 measuring 434 yards and is reckoned to be one of the best finishing holes anywhere in Scotland. There's plenty of trouble awaiting a wayward tee shot and, even if you find the fairway, the approach is far from easy.
Originally founded in 1780 as the Society of Golfers at Aberdeen, the Royal Aberdeen Golf Club is the sixth oldest golf club in the world. Before or after a round, golfers can review an number of historical golf memorabilia in the clubhouse to add to your experience.
